Hi! today i made le planning for an acrylic piece I want to do in the near future! it's an ode to the tight knit friendgroup i've had over hs and the dope ass memories we've shared. the background is my best friend's backyard. we set up the place w incandescent lightbulbs and it was str8 ~ vibin ~ as we blasted music and played ping pong all night. the foreground in the reflection of the lightbulb is us chillin in Central Park. i haven't told em im making it and i wanna surprise em with it once i make the fully rendered acrylic :))
I continued manufacturing face shields for special ed teachers today. I spent a while testing and adjusting the speeds and feeds until I was satisfied, then cut out a bunch of the shields. The only bit I have is an upcut end mill, so I need to use a paint stick and vacuum to hold the material down as it cuts.
When I googled Orpheus, I found that orpheus is an musician mythological character in greek. So, to make my orpheus meaninful, I tried to make an Musican Orpheus with headphones. hehe hope you like it.
finished the admin dashboard for my CodeLabs project! my part is almost done, just got a lot of writing to do
🚢 tried to ship out more hardware grants but every system in the world is against us right now :(
i had no clue what to do for today for my art so here's a Alpaca statue with my 5 alpacas (two of them are shy)
(Reposting because the original message won’t send so tell me if the original message does send) My take on a humanoid version of Orpheus...or would it be Hackagotchi’s Hackpheus? Or the original unused Adorpheus? Hmm...what if I make this a full picture?
Guess who's got their kayaking certification? Meeee, I completely fluked that "assessment" and now it's "safe" for me to kayak. I am a one star kayaker, I honestly didn't know you needed a certification to kayak so this weekend took an unexpected turn but was certainly one fun experiment! Also had fish and chips from this very British fish and chips shop, yumm
photos are of some art in the MRT I saw, a very empty mrt carriage and the fish and chips
Today I worked on the UI of my CodeLabs project's admin dashboard and fixed a crucial bug, getting close to the finish line! I might even get the admin dashboard done tomorrow
Also loads of hardware grants stuff done, was up super late last night reviewing about 100 applications, but we did it! ✅
But let's not forget my daily piece of art:
sketched the plant in my living room! it’s native to India, and has these really cool leaves that run with pink streaks as it grows. my grandpa ~smuggled~ brought it as a root to the states and it’s grown quite sizable since then
🖍️ I'm not sure if this is the correct category to post this art in, or if this would be considered an art at all. What's special about this drawing is that it was drawn just by using straight lines.
It was drawn on a CNC pen plotter/drawing machine that I made. So, no actual drawing skill from me. However, this particular drawing took me a really long time to generate GCodes for. It was a process of using multiple photo editors to create the perfect grey-scale image of this photo of my favorite singer. Then using multiple GCode generating software to find out what generates the best GCode for my machine, and modifying the final GCode using a text editor to make sure everything will work. After 3-4 failed attempts, it took over 9 hours for this just one drawing (I fell asleep) and it consists of more than 4000 straight lines if I remember correctly.
Made some art for art week it's a nebula, I made it with paint and a toothbrush, I'm pretty happy with it! 🎨
Also today the student council hosted our first session with the kids at the rainbow center, had some fun over Zoom together
Worked on my CodeLabs project, made the admin dashboard with Flask.
And finishing off the day doing Hardware Party stuff
🖼️ My first submission for the Hack Club Fine Arts Gala - my profile picture was in need of a re-draw for a while, since my style changed quite a bit over two years...but knowing me, I wasn't just gonna re-make it. Nah, I had to i n t e n s i f y it far beyond reason. Also, I enjoy harsh shadows. huhuhu
